About Us

SAHF’s mission is to advance the creation and preservation of healthy, sustainable affordable rental homes that foster equity, opportunity, and wellness for people of limited economic resources. SAHF believes that a quality, affordable home is fundamental in a person’s life. We are a collaborative of 13 nonprofit multi-state affordable housing providers and SAHF’s affiliate, the National Affordable Housing Trust, which provides financing solutions. SAHF members own more than 138,000 affordable rental homes nationwide. Drawing on their deep experience, members come together to anticipate the future, increase impact, and challenge one another. SAHF co-creates solutions grounded in business realities and advocate for quality rental housing. We work within our industry and across sectors to disseminate our learnings.

We use our values to guide how we work and how we think about whom we are serving. Our values provide a filter through which we prioritize and make decisions.

• Respect – Through thought and actions, we value the insights, experiences, and ideas of our members, colleagues, communities and residents. We honor the dignity of all people and work to ensure that equity is an explicit and important tenet in all that we do.

• Diversity and Inclusion - We believe that diversity and inclusion strengthens our decision-making, quality of work and impact. We embrace the fundamental right of all people to have a full, vibrant and healthy life, including those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic status, citizenship status, or religion,

• Collaboration - We prize and foster robust engagement and mutual support with residents, members, partners and other stakeholders, understanding that it helps to facilitate innovation, achieve scale and create deeper impact.

• Stewardship – We continually seek more impactful ways to use resources, protect the environment and forge long-term solutions to further our mission. • Integrity - We approach our work with accountability for its impact, serving with truth, fairness and sincerity.
